WWL Cuts Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 32%

Monday, April 26, 2010

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), a global shipping and logistics company, managed to cut its green house gas emissions by 32% last year. The company also cut its sulphur dioxide emissions (SO2) emissions by 135,000 tonnes in a nine year period from 2000 to 2009, an amount nearly equal to all the SO2 emissions from road vehicles in the United States for an entire year*.

“Even in times of global economic crisis, we must continue to build value for our customers,” declared Arild B. Iversen, CEO of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics. “An efficient supply chain, with reduced environmental risks in every possible step, is one of the surest ways to cut costs while benefitting the environment.”

The figures cited above are contained in the company's 2009 Environmental and Social Responsibility Report (www.2wglobal.com/esr), the shipping industry’s first emissions inventory report to receive 3rd party verification that it conforms to the accounting requirements of ISO 14064-1 and The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) ±.

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. The GHG Protocol, a decade-long partnership between the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. It is working with businesses, governments, and environmental groups around the world to build a new generation of credible and effective programs for tackling climate change.
